Getting your saxophone and your saxophone accessories
to work together nicely is sometimes tricky. There is a large selection of saxophone accessories including straps
, crooks, stands
, music lyres, ligatures and caps that you have to match to your saxophone. A comfortable shoulder strap, for example, might not seem like an important accessory, but by using it properly you reduce the fatigue of playing the saxophone and your music sounds better.
A saxophone case is another thing to consider, especially if you are traveling with your saxophone a lot. The reeds and the mouthpieces are among the most important saxophone accessories, having a direct and noticeable effect on the way your music sounds like.
Vital elements – reeds and mouthpieces
Finding a good mouthpiece is more important than many saxophone players think when they are just learning the tricks. Balancing all the elements related to your saxophone music is important – otherwise the highest quality stands, cases, music lyres, ligatures and caps won’t mean much. When purchasing a mouthpiece, you should have a list of things that you need to do: bring some disinfectant, plenty of reeds, your saxophone, a friend who is knowledgeable about sax music and a tuner. These will help you find the right mouthpiece and enable all your saxophone accessories to work as a whole, producing the exact sound that you are looking for.
When selecting other accessories, try to buy them while having a certain goal in mind. What kind of sound are you looking for? What artist do you wish to mimic with your initial saxophone music? It’s better to spend some time looking for the right accessories rather than to rush in and purchase stuff you will never be able to use to your satisfaction.
